Robin Padilla, Luis Manzano, Jericho Rosales at French Film Festival premiere night
The French fest also attracted Cesca Litton, Raymond Gutierrez, Carla Humphries, Solenn Heussaff, and Isabelle Daza.
The 15th French Film Festival in Manila officially launched on June 3 at the Shangri-la Cineplex, attracting actors Robin Padilla, Luis Manzano, Jericho Rosales (who escorted the event's host and entertainment reporter Cesca Litton, whom he is exclusively dating), and Carla Humphries; TV host Raymond Gutierrez; and models Solenn Heussaff, Isabelle Daza and Adrien Semblat.
French box-office hit L'Amour C'est Mieux Ã Deux (The Perfect Date) was screened right after the program led by French Ambassador Thierry Borja de Mozota. In a press release, Padilla said he admires the way French cinema focuses on stories of genuine human experience rather than special effects. He wished Philippine cinema could do the same.
